2016 Las Brisas Vineyard Pinot Noir, Carneros
The breezes (las brisas) blowing off the San Pablo Bay in Carneros make the Las Brisas Vineyard ideal for growing Pinot Noir grapes. This scintillatingly balanced Pinot Noir has aromatic layers of bright red cherries, fresh notes of wild strawberries, cherry lollipop, wild game, and a hint of violets. On the palate, strawberry jam intermingles with notes of vanilla and walnuts. Baking spices and redolent cherries burst from this wine with a textured, round mouthfeel and long structured finish.
